Looking for a camp that’s fun AND educational? Our science-themed camps feature hands-on activities led by experienced educators, and are held during winter break, spring break, teacher planning days and the entire summer.
The Challenger Learning Center’s “Camp Challenger” strives to ensure campers have fun in a safe and educational atmosphere. At the Challenger Center, each camp group contains at least one certified teacher. Campers are also guaranteed focused attention with a ratio of at least one adult for every eight children.
